Weekly Illustration Challenge – Speakers

Drawing, it’s one of those hobbies I always say I will spend time on, and then when the time comes I find myself lacking the inspiration to know what to paint. So I decided to follow the Munchs Cronch weekly drawing challenge. Hopefully this is the start of a creative 2012 with plenty of illustrations and random ideas.
